Hispanic Journalists in Jerusalem

18 Jan

Had an incredible evening in Jerusalem with a group of America’s leading Hispanic journalists, including Ruben Navarette, commentator for CNN, USA Today, NPR, and nationally syndicated columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group; Ruben Keoseyan, Executive Editor of La Opinion in Los Angeles, the largest Spanish newspaper in the U.S. with a circulation higher than most major American dailies; and other print and broadcast journalists.

We talked about the roots of media bias in the Israeli-Arab conflict, and about how Israel’s unique immigrant-based culture provides lessons for the American-Hispanic community, which now numbers 50 million (comprising, for example, one-third the population of Texas and California) and accounting for 25% of Americans under age 10.

The group was visiting as part of the “American Voices in Israel” program.
